We’re proud to announce our world-class #safety practices were awarded STEP Diamond by ABC National for our commitment to total human health on our jobsites.
STEP participants measure their safety processes and policies on key components through a detailed questionnaire with the goal of implementing or enhancing safety programs that reduce jobsite incidents. Because of our commitment to safety, we have maintained an excellent company safety record, reflected in our current EMR of 0.84. To this point, our team has worked over 1,400,000 man-hours since 2006 without a lost time injury.
“Safety is a journey, and that journey is possible because of systems like STEP, which enables ABC member contractors like DonahueFavret Contractors to have a safer and more productive jobsite,” said Greg Sizemore, ABC vice president of health, safety, environment, and workforce development. “Committing to total human health is essential to ensure both the physical and mental health and safety of our workforce, and I commend DonahueFavret for consistently fulfilling those commitments to raising the bar of safety performance.”
According to ABC’s annual Safety Performance Report, STEP participants, regardless of company size or type of work, and can reduce recordable incidents up to 85%, making the best performing companies more than eight times safer than the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average. Ratings range from Diamond, the highest, to Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Participant.
